to work. >>> america, i believe we can build on the progress we have made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class. >> the president is promising a fight. but republicans in congress won't go down easy. tonight bernie sanders is here to remind the president that he has the upper hand. >>> the citizens united disaster continues to unfold for republicans. the biggest loser is losing control. >> but the president has a real -- he succeeded intel pressing the vote. >> sherrod brown in ohio, on his massive victory. >>> and righties continue to freak out over the death of traditional america? >> it's not a traditional america anymore. >> eugene robinson weighs in tonight. >> and with us tonight, folks, thanks for watching. the obama campaign has just released video of the president addressing his staff in chicago. he gets very emotional. it's remarkable video. we'll bring it in just a moment. president obama doesn't have a lot of time to bask in his electoral victory. the fight for the middle class starts right now in congress. the confetti
and patriotism. that's what makes america great. >> a little bit different than 2008, isn't it? you know, in a way, this victory was brought to you by the radical governors, who spent the last three years stumping all over the middle class in their states. there's something all of these governors have in common, i'm talking about john casey in ohio, chris christie in new jersey, rick snyder in michigan, tom corbett in pennsylvania, rick scott in florida. let's not forget bob mcdonnell in virginia. and of course, scott walker in washington. what do they all -- sorry, wisconsin. what do they all have in common? they pursued an agenda to limit the rights of workers in their states so they could balance the budget, but also break up the unions. their agenda, last night, was rejected by the people in their state. you know what they all got in common? all of their states went blue. i guess we could say, well, thank you, governors, for defining the republican party for us. it made voting a lot easier for a lot of americans, like these voters, the radical agenda of the right was defeated by thes
will be the united states of america. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. today we're on the other side of history. last night we saw a statement election in america and it opens up a huge opportunity for democrats to move this country forward. this was the scene in chicago, the moment president obama supporters were told he secured enough electoral votes to be re-elected as the 44th president of the united states. president obama is not niaive about his place in history. the victory was a repudiation of the right wing agenda. also an affirmation of the president's vision for the country. >> what makes america exceptional are the bonds that hold together the most diverse nation on earth. the belief that our destiny is shared. that this country only works when we accept certain obligations to one another and the to future generations, so that the freedom for which so many americans have fought for and died for comes with responsibilities as well as rights, and among those are love and charity and duty and patriotism. that's what makes america great. >> a little bit d
a shot at the middle class. most of america would rather pay taxes than they would drawing an unemployment check. that's what we operate under, that assumption, and we need as part of this taxing the wealthy to pay a little bit more and some reasonable balanced cuts, but more of a 1:1 ratio rather than what republicans want to do. you need a jobs component, too. >> this comes down to negotiations, and from what is reported about what the president told the basers in that meeting today, doesn't that send a real hard line message to mitch mcconnell, and that's what's lacking in all of this? >> i think mitch mcconnell is a little worried. you saw some of these people on election night. you saw karl rove's response. you saw mcconnell the next day. you saw speaker boehner, who is the most -- i think the most flexible of the group. they know that they're going to have to come to the table and give on a lot of things. not just that we won the election, but when i see the organizing around the president's message. he'll travel the country and talk to people, and the country is over
the economy today. he reminded america that there was an election on tuesday and the people have spoken. the president spoke from the east room of the white house surrounded by middle class americans. he's ready to lead on fiscal challenges facing this country. >> the american people voted for action. not politics as usual. you elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. and in that spirit, i have invited leaders of both parties to the white house next week so we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together. >> no heavy hand, no arrogance whatsoever. if there's one word to sum up the president's presentation today, it's this. consistent. the guy who gave the speech is the same guy who we watched on the campaign trail for the last seven months. americans want cooperation when it comes to a deal on the united states economy and the president is delivering his side of the bargain. >> we can't just cut our way to prosperity. if we're serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spending cuts with revenue. that means asking the wealthiest ameri

america moving forward. i've come back to iowa one more time to ask for your vote. i came back to ask you to help us finish what we've started because this is where our movement for change began. right here. right here. right behind these bleachers is the building that was home to our iowa headquarters in 2008. i was just inside and it brought back a lot of memories. this is where some of the first young people who joined our campaign set up shop. willing to work for little pay and less sleep because they believed that people who love their country can change it. this is where so many of you who shared that belief came to help. when the heat didn't work for the first week or so, some of you brought hats and gloves for the staff. these poor kids weren't prepared. when the walls inside were bare, one of you painted a mural to lift everybody's spirits. we had a steak fry to spark to. when we had a jj dinner to fire up. you brought your neighbors and made homemade signs. we had calls to make, teachers and nurses showed up after work already bone tired but stayed any way late into the night. y
evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. america rejected paul ryan. apparently john boehner didn't get the memo. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> we've seen talk about a possible compromise that would leave rates the same, but cap the deductions for high income earners. is that something acceptable? >> no. >> democrats aren't budging. the service employees international union breaks news on my radio show. >> how would you feel if the bush tax cuts expired all the way across the board and we started over with the obama tax cuts? how would that work for you? >> i think that would be acceptable. >> former labor secretary robert reich and congressman bill pascrell on the latest movement on the fight for the middle class. >>> a judge orders mediation for hostess and its employees. but make no mistake, the vulture capitalists will get their cut. i'll talk twinkie with rolling stone's matt taibbi. >>> plus john mccain. >> the chickens are now coming home the roost. >>> the banks revolt against elizabeth warren, and workers are threatening strikes at walmart
in america and we're making american cars with american workers. and now suddenly you got a guy going out there saying, you know, something that is not true? you don't scare hard working americans, just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is about. >> when romney isn't buying scared voters, he's making up a fantasy about working across the aisle? in america and we're making american cars with american workers. and now suddenly you got a guy going out there saying, you know, something that is not true? you don't scare hard working americans, just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is about. >> when romney isn't buying scared voters, he's making up a fantasy about working across the aisle? >> you know that if the president is re-elected, he will still be unable to work with the people in congress. i mean, he's ignored them. he's attacked them. he's blamed them. the debt ceiling will come up again. and shut down in default will be threatened. >> so what is happening here is that mitt romney is telling the american people we need to cave in to the gop
programs that fit the demographics of the changing america in the coming years. we're prepared to put revenue on the table, provided we fix the real problem. >> the real problem? let me tell you something, senator. the real problem is two unfunded wars from the bush years, the bush tax cuts, and the give away to big pharma. senator mcconnell, it seems to me like he's up to something here. he knows how far senator bernie sanders and other democrats are going to defend the big three. senator mcconnell is hoping to get the democrats fighting one another on this, over the entitlement reform. but do we have common ground here on day one, let's bring in congressman chris van hollen of maryland. great to have you with us tonight. >> always good to be with you. >> do we have positive move forward? we're hearing republicans say they will give up some revenue. your take on it. >> as you said, ed, most of them are saying the right thing, but the devil is always in the details. and it's important to remember that we already had a trillion dollars worth of cuts to the budget as part of the budget
and nerds. >> tonight the legendary henry winkler on the traditional america and the reelection of president obama. >>> good to have you with us. democrats have the upper hand in the fight for the middle class in this country. it's time to make sure that the party stays unified on the issue of debt reduction. bloomberg news reported on nervous democrats in the house and senate who were wary about pushing hard for tax hikes for the wealthiest americans. among them are seven senators up for reelection in 2014 in red states. the centrist think tank gave them ammunition with a polling memo showing most americans want compromise in washington. third way, what about the people's way? folks, compromise does not mean giving republicans everything they want and you know that paul ryan is going to be greedy when he comes to the table. the most important poll was taken on november 6th. the americans are on board for higher taxes for the wealthiest americans. labor groups have take on to the air waves to address the democratic lawmakers who are making the deal. >> how do we move our country forward? by
, pushing the pause button could destroy america's credit rating and further harm the economy. mark zandi, chief economist at moody's analytics says, "if we can kick the can, at some point moody's is going to downgrade. you're going to create more instability in the financial markets." zandi said it would be better to do nothing than to create an extension. republicans and some centrist democrats are definitely not getting the message. when the president won re-election, he said his number one priority is to reach an economic deal by reaching across both sides of the aisle. >> i want to be clear. i'm not wedding to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> republicans and some democrats stop listening right there. if you let the president just continue, you're going to hear the key point of these negotiations. >> i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i am not going to ask students and seniors and middle class families to pay down the enti
a campaign stop in green bay. >> when disaster strikes, we see america at its best. all the petty differences that consume us in normal times all seem to melt away. there are no democrats or republicans during a storm. they're just fellow americans. leaders of different parties working to fix what's broken. neighbors helping neighbors cope with tragedy. communities rallying to rebuild. a spirit that says, in the end, we're all in this together. >> when you have a willing partner, you can get things done. all americans are willing partners in this storm aftermath. i mean, we can see it every single day, can't we? we are reminded with every picture on display just how devastating the damage is, and then we put ourselves in the place of those people and say, holy smokes. people feel the sadness and every time they turn on their television, they get another story about how rough it's going to be for fellow americans. you know, there has been a storm in washington for the past four years. people couldn't see it, just by turning on the tv, but they hear about it. we have a continuing financial cris
i'm talking about it tonight. this is a time for progressive community in america to speak with authority and with clarity on what this country really wants. liberals, this is our time. it's time to govern. it's no time to back down. and if you're out there, and if you think the election season's over, you're wrong. this -- we fought and we worked hard for this opportunity to be in this position to do what? make change. get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question. can republicans reinvent themselves with minority voters? text "a" for yes, text "b" for no to 6 22639. i want you to go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com and leave a comment on this one. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining me tonight, congressman luis gutierrez of illinois. also with us, michael steele, msnbc analyst and former chairman of the rnc. gentlemen, great to have you with us tonight. >> good to see you, ed. >> congressman, you were on the floor today introducing your republican colleagues to hispanic voters in america. did they hear your message? >> i cert
a campaign stop in green bay. >> when disaster strikes, we america a all the petty differences that consume seem to me there a republicans during a storm. they're just fellow americans. leaders of different parties working to fix what's broken. neighbors helping neighbors cope with tragedy. communities rallying to rebuild. a spirit that says, in the end, we're all in this together. >> when you have a willing partner, you can get things done. all americans are willing can't let you succeed in anything. that's our ticket to coming back." what if we took that attitude right there to the storm damage and cleanup? now mitt romney said he's the guy who can reach across the aisle? not according to the most influential in washington, grover norquist. according to norquist, mitt romney is not supposed to do anything except what the republicans tell him to. >> we don't need a president to tell us what direction to go. we know what direction we want to go. we want the paul ryan budget which cuts spending $6 trillion. the republicans in the house passed 24-plus bills that create jobs and opportunity an
america. fixing roads, putting folks back to work, rebuilding our bridges and making sure our schools are state-of-the-art. that's es speshlt le important for our veterans. we want to put them to work. that's my commitment to them. that's what's at stake in this election. and president clinton talked about it. we've got to reduce our deficit. i've got a trillion dollars worth of spending and we can do more. we're not just using it in tv ads and once you get in office, like dick cheney said, it doesn't matter. and then we have to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to the tax rates that they paid when president clinton was in office. and the reason is because budgets are about choices. as long as i'm president, i'm not going to turn in another voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cut. so, virginia, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we know, also, that it won't be easy. i warned some of you. maybe you weren't believing me. i said real change isn't just about changing presidents or changing parties. it's about changing our politics. we've been shu
of the house of representatives and take our oath to the constitution of the united states of america and still most republicans will take their oath to grover norquist and that's the fundamental difference between us. >> here is senator lindsey graham of south carolina on norquist. here it is. >> i agree with grover we shouldn't raise rates but i think grover is wrong when it comes to we can't cap deductions and buy down debt. i want to buy down debt and cut rates to create jobs. i will violate the pledge long story short, for the good of the country only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> does this mean you have to put medicaid, medicare on the table to get these folks to think your way. graham isn't going far enough. congressman tom cole, another republican, is willing to see what people wants. is this starting to crack? are we seeing a trend? >> democrats have passed the budget control act which cut spending by nearly $1 billion. with he were willing to support a compromise that would further reduce spending in exchange for revenues from the rich. we have already agreed to compromi
advertising and branding and letting folks know that we're back and we're here in america and we're making american cars with american workers. and now suddenly you got a guy going out there saying, you know, something that is not true? you don't scare hard working americans, just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is about. >> when romney isn't buying scared voters, he's making up a fantasy about working across the aisle? >> you know that if the president is re-elected, he will still be unable to work with the people in congress. i mean, he's ignored them. he's attacked them. he's blamed them. the debt ceiling will come up again. and shut down in default will be threatened. >> so what is happening here is that mitt romney is telling the american people we need to cave in to the gop hostage takers. romney says the president should have given in to mitch mcconnell and john boehner. anything they wanted, boys. of course, they wanted to defeat president obama from the start, but despite their obstruction, unemployment has fallen to the lowest point since president obama's
